The United States Coast Guard, Environmental Protection Agency & the State of Alaska Seek Input on Dispersant Avoidance Areas off the Coast of Alaska

A multi-agency team is seeking public input that will help guide the development of Dispersant Avoidance Areas within the Preauthorization Area as required by the Alaska Regional Response Team (RRT) Dispersant Use Plan for Alaska. This plan was signed and enacted in January 2016 and is part of the Alaska Federal/State Preparedness Plan for Response to Oil and Hazardous Substance Discharges/Releases. Avoidance Areas will be included in Section 1 of appropriate Subarea Contingency Plans. In the event of an off-shore crude oil discharge, Avoidance Areas will guide the Federal On-Scene Coordinator in making dispersant use decisions. More information on Avoidance Areas and how to provide public comments is available on the project website: http://nukadraft.wixsite.com/avoidanceareas

The agencies will be receiving comments until January 9, 2017. A technical committee of federal and State agency personnel will review public comments before recommending Avoidance Areas for FOSC approval. Call (907) 299-3224 for additional information.
